Say Hello to Yomi,

Some dentists will tell you they can place your dental implant freehanded. I was doing that in 2006. Others will say they can place surgically guided implants. I was doing that in 2014.

Now it is 2024, and Veranda Dentistry is bringing the first and only Yomi dental robot to the state of Iowa.

I am now offering dental implants with the Yomi robotic-assisted placement. The countdown is on till Yomi is here! Schedule a consult by May 20th to receive our kick-off celebration offer of $2000 off.



Schedule a visit today!

We know how intimidating dental implants can be. Thanks to Yomi we are thrilled to announce the process is streamlined and simplified, making getting your missing tooth replaced with a dental implant easier than ever before.


First is to call our experience team at Veranda to review how Yomi can replace your missing teeth. We will schedule your consult where we will take 3D images that let us efficiently plan your options digitally, allowing for a quicker timeline than traditional dental implants.


Often times your consult and implant placement can be done same-day thanks to the personalized and precise Robot-assisted implant procedure. Yomi also allows you to recover faster, meaning less pain, less time eating soft foods and less time off work.


Enjoy a beautiful confident smile that is so natural-looking no one would even know it’s a dental implant. Plus, with the accuracy of the Yomi robot you implant should last a lifestime

What role does Yomi play in my procedure?

Yomi gives our dental team important information on your teeth and jaws. This helps them plan dental surgery treatment that is personalized to you. Yomi then guides your dental surgeon to achieve to that plan. Yomi also allows the dental surgeon to adapt the plan for your patient care needs.

Is robotic assistance new?

Robotic assistance is becoming a standard of care in medicine, used to help over one million patients every year. Yomi is the first and only system for robotic guidance for dental surgery in the United States.

Does Yomi replace my dental surgeon?

Yomi does not replace your dental surgeon. Yomi gives your dental surgeon helpful assistance. The dental surgeon holds onto and directs the Yomi instruments. Yomi combines your dental surgeon’s skill with the benefits of robotic surgery.

What can I expect with Yomi surgery?

If Yomi is right for you, your dental team will create a custom treatment plan with Yomi software.

The first dental implant robot in Iowa

Robot-assisted procedures have become the standard of care in medicine. In fact, this approach is used to help more than one million patients every year. Yomi is the first and only robotic system for dental surgery in the U.S. and Veranda Dentistry is the first to offer this procedure in Iowa!

What is the Yomi dental robot and how does it work?

If robot-assisted surgery is right for you, the Veranda dental team will use proprietary YomiPlan software to develop a personalized treatment plan. Once your procedure is underway, Yomi will use that plan to guide Dr. Johnson & Dr. Langel with real-time feedback they can feel, hear, and see – so you get optimal results.
